San Juan (Agenzia Fides) – His Exc Mgr. José Dolores Grullon Estrella, Bishop of the Diocese of San Juan de la Maguana, announced the 60th celebrations for the anniversary of the founding of the diocese, created on September 25, 1953 with the title of "Prelature Nullius", as it did not have a native clergy at that time.
